American Sniper:   The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History

by Chris Kyle by Harper

I’ll admit, I haven’t read the book but I saw the movie with my husband on the day it was released in theaters.  Bradley Cooper was in a word:  AMAZING.  This movie does an excellent job of giving insight into the day to day activities in the war that our American soldiers face in the middle east.  Chris Kyle is a legend among his peers, and this movie clearly illustrates why.  The movie is rated R for strong and disturbing war violence, and language throughout including some sexual references but I’m going to allow my 16 year old to see it.   I think it will give him a good perspective on the war. 

We sent an Aha! Subscriber to the movie before it opened and this is what she wrote to me:  Read More »

Let Google Fiber know we want them in Dunwoody!

Submitted by Jennifer O.

  I wanted to share this exciting news with you in hopes that it would attract people in the area to sign up for updates.  Google Fiber is 100x faster internet and TV than basic broadband (putting Comcast to shame) and they just announced Atlanta is one of the next cities.  Dunwoody isn’t listed off as a specific “Google Fiber Atlanta” city, but when I entered my N. Peachtree/Kingsley Elem. address, it shows we will qualify.  However, just because you qualify doesn’t mean you will be able to sign up for it.  Enough people in your neighborhood/”fiberhood” have to want it too.  People in Dunwoody can show interest in this service by clicking the link below, entering their address, and signing up for updates.  https://fiber.google.com/cities/atlanta/home/
